Grand Ronde Tribes yet to add descendants of chief back to roll


The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde in Oregon are moving slowly when it comes to putting the descendants of a chief back on the rolls.

The 86 descendants of Chief Tumulth won a major tribal court ruling more than a month ago. But the tribe has yet to restore them to membership and they've already missed an election as a result, The Salem Statesman Journal reports.

"We are descendants of Chief Tumulth and he signed the Willamette Valley Treaty of 1855. That's the original Grand Ronde document," descendant Debi Anderson told the tribal council at a recent meeting, the paper said.
